Previously only available in CD and Digital formats, 'Garland of Skulls' has long since been out of print in CD format.

Queen Elephantine, modal psychedelic doom, presents their third
album: a long song in three parts, Garland of Skulls—kapālamālā. They have also released several EPs, including splits with Sons of Otis and Elder. Formed in Hong Kong in 2006 and migrated to USA, the band is currently based between NYC and RI.

"To put this band into some sort of perspective, I would have to put them sort of what Pink Floyd or Hawkwind would be if they went metal while on serious rounds of downers while experimenting with some instruments from India… Forceful yet very melancholy, with this overall bleak feeling that nears the bottom of pure desperation in every word sung... Pretty heavy shit. 8/10" -Doom Mantia
